The Education Authority Music Service are delighted to be working in partnership with the award winning music educational resource Charanga, a modern, easy-to-use online resource to help teach primary music.
BBC Ten Pieces is an exciting initiative for primary and secondary age students led by BBC Learning and the BBC Performing Groups. Its aim is to open up the world of classical music to a new generation of children and inspire them to develop their own creative responses to ten pieces of music using a variety of art forms - digital art or animation, performance poetry, dance or movement and composition.
The music service provides support to the NI curriculum at every stage in schools. The statutory music provision is met in key stage one with the musical pathways delivery, and through the whole class schemes for many classes at key stage 2. The formal assessments in music at GCSE, AS and A2 carry a substantial percentage of marks for practical performance, and the music service provides invaluable support in order to prepare students for their performance.
